SFCM gives its first concert of 2013

January 17, 2013 by  

In just over a week’s time, the Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music (SFCM), in association with Eastern Security Services, will be holding a concert of Mozart’s work at the Lincoln Middle School in Liverpool, New York.

Conductor Heather Buchman will be leading a group of musicians assembled from Symphony Syracuse. The programs features three pieces composed by Mozart: Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K. 662; A Musical Joke, K. 522; and Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola, and Orchestra , K. 364. Soloists Allan Kolsky on the clarinet, Eric Gustafson on the violin, and former SSO concertmaster Andrew Zaplatynsky will be prominently featured during the performance. There will also be a fourth song by composer Frederick Delius entitled ‘On Hearing The First Cuckoo In Spring’.

The SFCM was founded by violinist Louis Krasner in 1949. He had a vision of making chamber music more popular among Americans. To this end he tried to hold concerts featuring prominent Syracuse musicians working together with internationally renowned musicians. The organization still works with this idea as its guiding light.

In preparation for the event, which is to be held on Saturday, January 26th, the SFCM may want to hire print companies to help and promote this concert. Print companies could create flyers and other materials to be handed out in Liverpool or other nearby towns.

The concert will begin at 7:30 pm, and tickets are available at the door. Regular tickets are $20, with tickets for seniors and students being $15 and $10 respectively.
